Each Tuesday afternoon, a cohort of sixth-grade students from the Gilman School visits Pickersgill Retirement Community. For six consecutive weeks approximately one third of the class interacts with a group of our residents through games, biography projects, and casual conversation. By the end of the school year all students in the sixth-grade will have had the opportunity to participate in a special activity at Pickersgill.
Recently the middle school boys and our residents collaborated to complete a story telling project. The result is a cluster of hand illustrated rocks, each of which depicts an aspect of a conversation between the student and a resident. The colorful collection of rocks creates a beautiful mosaic of words and images.
Thank you Gilman students.
P.S. you rock!
